Bedtime Prayer: Jesus King of Angels

Jesus, King of angels, heaven’s light,
Shine Your face upon this house tonight.
Let no evil come into my dreams;
Light of heaven, keep me in Your peace.

Remind me how You made dark spirits flee,
And spoke Your power to the raging sea.
And spoke Your mercy to a sinful man;
Remind me, Jesus, this is what I am.

The universe is vast beyond the stars,
But You are mindful when the sparrow falls,
And mindful of the anxious thoughts That find me,
surround me, and bind me . . . .

With all my heart I love You, Sovereign Lord.
Tomorrow, let me love You even more.
And rise to speak the goodness of Your name
Until I close my eyes and sleep again.


Jesus, King of angels, heaven’s light,
Hold my hand and keep me through this night.

(~Fernando Ortega)

    This is beautiful. To God be the glory!! May this prayer that he sings be our reality. May He glorify Himself in you and you in Him. His work is mighty in the midst in the storm and He is forming Christ in us.

    God bless you my sweet one. I am praying for you.
